One Side of the Wall

Every Oxbow citizen is paired with their future mate based on a compatibility test they take at the age of 9.

The Partner Assignment.

Unfortunately I am paired with William Inch, the Dwarf Kid. It’s been 8 years since Partner Assignment Day… 8 years of indifference between us.

It is Year 149, after the end of the world. I’m an Outsider in Oxbow City, entrapped by concrete walls of water to keep the dangers out and its elite citizens protected, controlled, and brainwashed. When I witness something life threatening, something that makes me question our timeline regarding the end of the world, I must use my connection to Will and create a fake relationship between us to avoid being arrested. Our Partnership, and the Partner Assignment system, will be tested in our quest for answers.

In our journey to find the truth, can Will and I survive the threats within the city and what lies beyond?

Trigger Warnings: Violence, references to rape, and creepy monsters. I recommend this book to a 14+ audience and reader discretion is advised.

Painted on the Wall


The Partner Assignment will provide you with your best-suited match, not your soulmate. 

As our journey continues, we are forced to navigate dangerous uncharted territory in Oxbow City. William Inch, my assigned partner, has become my devoted ally and yet our views of the ideologies enforced by the City Council vary greatly.

The lies are piling up and my cover stories are wearing thin. 

 Rebellious Outsiders within the city jeopardize the social order and safety of citizens, and radical Outsiders beyond the wall leave threatening messages forewarning their unnerving agenda. Emotions run high as we are faced with supernatural, political, and moral ultimatums that neither of us can survive without the other. As the Dwarf Kid's unofficial secret keeper, I am trapped in the Partner Assignment system with him for better or for worse. 

Can our faith in The Partner Assignment continue to protect us as we uncover the mysteries behind both sides of the wall?

Trigger Warnings: Violence, references to rape, and coarse language. I recommend this book to a 14+ audience and reader discretion is advised.
